Travel preparation

Personal preparation

Since the climate of Togo differs greatly from that of your home country, please mind the fact that the trip can be very exhausting. You should therefore be in a physical condition that is appropriate for the circumstances. You should also have your vaccinations refreshed or vaccinated in accordance with the vaccination certificate and the regulations of the country of Togo.
It is mandatory to have a vaccination certificate. A yellow fever vaccination is required for entry into the country. These and all other vaccinations must be entered in a vaccination certificate and confirmed by a doctor.

In addition, the standard vaccinations (tetanus, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), etc. (see Robert Koch Institute)) should exist. Hepatitis A is also recommended as a travel vaccination, and hepatitis B and typhoid are recommended for long-term stays or special exposure. A tropical or travel doctor should be contacted for medical advice. Togo is also repeatedly affected by malaria, so we recommend chemoprophylaxis (taking tablets) for prevention. In addition, protective measures such as long, bright clothes, treated mosquito nets, anti-mosquito spray for textiles and skin, etc. can be taken.

It is highly recommended to have health insurance for traveling abroad. You are required to have a valid passport. It should be valid for another 6 months to apply for a visa. We would be happy to offer you assistance in applying for a visa or take care of it for you.

Personal equipment

Unfortunately we cannot provide all the materials, so there is a small list of personal equipment that our guests should bring with them.

A sleeping bag and towels should be inlcuded in the personal luggage. The sleeping bag should be suitable for warm and cold temperatures and should be packed as small and light as possible. We recommend microfiber towels as they are quick-drying and space-saving in the packaging. If you want to carry technical devices (cell phone, camera, etc.) with you, you can charge your devices in our service car.

Everyday clothes should be quick-drying, light, body-covering and bright. Flip-flops, sandals or light shoes can be packed as footwear.

Appropriate motorcycle clothing should also be brought along. This includes an Enduro / motorcycle helmet with glasses or visor, airy motorcycle pants with Knee and bounce protection, a light motorcycle jacket / protector shirt with chest, back and elbow protection, motorcycle gloves and a cloth for protection against dust. For appropriate protection of the feet and ankles, suitable enduro or motorcycle shoes should be brought along. Since the weather will be hot and there will be longer riding days, you will have to make sure to consume sufficient amounts of water troughout the day. Therefore, a camel bag with a capacity of 1.5 to 2 liters should be brought along so that you can drink enough water even while riding.
